GSU Raid My Property Today


Today, at 10:45 A.M, the GSU and the Coast Guard raided my property in San Pedro.  They confiscated approximately $400,000 worth of property – cameras, computers, police gear purchased for donations (Note: I had donated tasers, pepper spray, to the SP Police department 4 weeks ago) and other items.  They spent 3 hours ransacking every one of my buildings.  This is the 8th search of my property since my disappearance.  It is certain, in my mind that something or other was planted during this search.  What it may be, I have no clue.  This is the first time that they have openly taken items from me since the first raid in April of this year.

This is all I know for now.  Stay tuned.

Update:  Sam’s father has just been arrested.  Threatened to taser him.  Locked my housekeeper in her house.  Terrorized her.  This is April all over again.

My email password has been changed.  I am sure this is the GSU.  They took my computers.

Anyone with friends in Yahoo – I have no email access.  Call your friend at Yahoo.  I need my account back.

    John, First of all, I feel for you. You either have real enemies, or you are deeply delusional. I do not doubt that the Police have ransacked your property, and perhaps stolen your personal goods, but you should meet with the Police to clear up your name, if you are innocent. Then, afterwards, please, go someplace else. We don’t need you, we don’t want you, and you obviously hate our country, otherwise you would not disrespect all of us by putting our flag upside down on your blog. We are a peaceful people, but none of us like people who come here and disrespect our country, or our flag, and throw mud at us. I am sorry your neighbor is dead, and I am sorry the Police want to ask you questions about that death, but you need to either come in and clear your name, or go away, and do not come back.

    Not going back to Belize……the USA and CA most of Europe are safe enough. I thought MX had gotten scary….congratulations Belize. Your inbred police and govt have finally influenced many of us Americans with disposable income not to come back and to spread the word to others. Your honest people will end up suffering the most as a result of your greed and corruption, but you (the lovely police and government) are definately too blind to care. It will affect you and yours at some point. You’ll see. John – thank you for exposing this and God be with you.

    How would the GSU change your Yahoo password after taking your stuff??? unless you always let your computers browser to remember the password for you – which is not a smart thing expected from someone of your calibre!! also in changing your password i guease you had some security quesion on yahoo to verify that you are the rightful owner or an alternate email address to reset your password- all this seems to have been there on your PC for anyone to use – not smart at all!!!

    So, Expat, why does McAfee stay in Belize? He could obviously get there in a heart beat if he wanted.

    No, in America he would have to pay someone, somewhere, off, to settle things, directly or indirectly. America is not the country you left 5 years ago. The elites here hate people like McAfee. He may be rich but they can’t handle his unconditional resistance to servitude.

    And why do you remain in Central America? You paint a rather bleak picture, yet you remain?

    Here’s the deal in America. It’s becoming one massive FEMA camp. And everyday the noose gets tighter. One day, the door will be shut and no one, other than those officials at “the highest levels” will have “permission” to enter or exit. And you better believe, YOU won’t ever be coming back. (Not that you’d want to.)

    John, Samantha;

    From an aerospace engineer reviewing this data- The Belize police and government are
    the same as kidnappers and terrorist holding people hostage. They are trying to get to
    John as he has made an absolute fool of the Belize government and and all police involved.

    As an American I believe all American citizens should demand America
    To not send any dollars in 2013 to Belize. They requested a little over $1 million
    but luckily it has already been reduced. Also all Americans should demand of
    Our United States government to not allow any TRAVEL to Belize until the kidnappers
    Have released all associates of John and Sam.

    Maybe John is guilty but maybe he is not, the Belize government should go after John not all
    of his friends. This is tactics that gangs, cartels, or terrorists use.

    John I will push this from the mainland.

    Mr. McAfee: What is your current legal status in Belize? Is there an arrest warrant out for you or not? If there is an arrest warrant then what is the charge? If there is no arrest warrant then why are you in hiding?

    Hi John,
    Bummer bro. That’s a lot of stuff. Hopefully they left the truly sentimental items behind. tasters and guns and stuff, can be replaced.

    You took a big risk living there. with possessions and money- it’s a shame you’ve become a target.

    this is how many latin american countries work. look at Mexico, what a mess. I can understand visiting or even living in these places for parts of the year but I don’t understand why you would settle with exposure to so much risk?

    I completely understand having a team of armed guards- it’s the right thing to do if you can afford it- but any place that would require you to have such a staff, may not be the safest place on the block.

    It sucks to see you on the run, for really no reason. Wise choice on leaving. Hopefully they’ll find who committed the homicide next door.

    If you haven’t left that country by now, perhaps you should try?

    No it is not USA style corruption. I’ve lived in both 1st and 3rd world and let me tell you it is night and day. I never experienced in your face extortion until I arrived in Central America. Cops will shake you down big time and do illegal search and seizure, whatever to solicit a bribe. This rarely happens in the USA. In the 3rd world, contractors and government workers all solicit bribes for favors. It’s open and expected. In the USA you will go to jail and loose your government pension if your are caught. Please don’t even try to compare USA with Central America, they are completely different worlds. It’s the wild west in Central America. There is no rule of law or protection for expats. Ask McAfee what he thinks. In the USA he could mount a legal defense and win. In Belize he is hosed.

    THIMK! It’s about circles of trust. To “say they found something” requires that the entire force be in on the story. To plant something requires only a single actor to share in the secret. Smaller groups keep secrets better, and can more easily keep their story straight.

  22. godot Avatar

    Be optimistic: They turned Sam’s father loose. Maybe the tide has turned. Maybe the GSU needed an excuse to go back into the property to protect John and themselves — by retrieving the “lunches” John suggested they planted there in a previous raid — and pillaging is just a natural and believable cover for their beneficence.

  23. Expat Avatar

    @European American: what you need to understand is corruption in the USA is at the highest levels much of which you do not see. In 3rd world countries corruption is at all levels, even down to the caretaker. It smacks you in the face. In the USA if a government employee solicits a bribe, he will lose his job and go to jail. In a banana republic, nothing with happen to the guy. Maybe he will lose his job at worst. What is happening to Mr. McAfee would not happen in the USA because there still is rule of law there. I currently live in Central America for the past 5 years so I know the meaning of corruption and being extorted. It is wicked here unlike anywhere in the USA.

    Lisa says “I will never holiday with my family in Belize.”

    Speaking of where and where not to “holiday” with your family, lisa. Might I suggest that you also consider avoiding, at all costs, the most rampantly corrupt, third world cesspool on the plant, that being Los Estados Unidos de America? I’m a native there, here (barely) and I can vouch that even the bolshevic president has a forked tongue, as do all politicians in this country, both sides of the fence, and they would slit your throat in a second, just for a few dollars.

    I suspect there is an intelligent reason why Mr. McAfee chooses to remain in Belize, aside from his present quandary. Just maybe the local police have been contacted by representatives of the Mulatto in DC? Corruption begets corruption.

    Uh Oh,

    I don’t know today if Johns posts ring the right way today. I noticed the update was on the same initial post about the raid. With all of the publicity, and now a ‘raid’, perhaps the cops are using a standing warrant. I am wondering if the place was actually ransacked, or if a bunch of stuff was just taken into custody. I wonder if these raids are damaging property, why the embassy doesn’t file formal complaints. I wonder if the cops flipped anyone to admit that John may have mentioned a take down of Mr. Faull, and someone acted on it as a favor. I don’t think John ordered anything BTW. I do wonder what connections are being made by the GSU, and perhaps that’s why they did take Sams dad in. I wonder if there is competence in the police force for investigations of this level. I wonder if planting IS actually going to be a used option. I wonder if Sam is going to have to make some very hard decisions. And here, I am stressed following these latest events. Ouch.

    john, in light of recent events you should seriously consider trying to reach out to anonymous for help. theyve pressured governments before and its worked…..also now that your email has seemingly been hacked, i think your could use some extra cyber protection/offence. im not sure they would even help out but when your lifes on the line, you need all the friends you can get. but if you make it through all this, can i come visit you? i would be honored just to meet you once and pick your brain for an hour or something.

  35. doctorsuperman Avatar

    It might stand to reason that Sam’s father was arrested, because she is “missing” and with you. That way they put pressure on her, to turn herself in, so she might turn you in, or that might place pressure on the father to divulge where Sam and John are or might be “on vacation”.
    I am not clear on which basis they can confiscate items that would not be directly related to the murder investigation.

    praying for you man…. I know the justice system of Third World countries, “there is NO justice”. I had a friend in Jamaica who owned a beautiful once “ESTATE” “grand home” type of place. The po-po planted “one bullet” there, had him arrested, his family had the great sense to have him committed into the hospital immediately, thus he didn’t have to go, as the Monopoly game states “directly to jail.”
    Eventually, the government decided to drop the charges as long as they were able to confiscate the “great estate”. It was an absolutely beautiful place, overlooking the Caribbean Ocean. “White Hall Estate” was the name of the place. Someone burned that beautiful house down and then it became a squatters place.
    I definitely want to mention that today at my job, while accessing your site, a very strange message came up. Verifying my IP address or something, I immediately logged off.
    When situations like this come up… believe me, the “Tourist Board” gets the shakes. My long time beloved, thirty years now, “paradise” country, crooked as they become… so because of that factor, I have been researching other places, thus, because you can get a car into Belize, as well as a lot of other things… I have been for sure a “fan” of Belize. Let me tell you, NO MORE a fan.
    I have a certain amount of protection (in Jamaica) just from living there, and being a “good” citizen there. The population point me out tihe bad boys, gang members “No bodda she or yuh haffi deal wid me”…
    I am so very sorry that your country of choice is dissing you so, I think you should marry your lady and get out of dodge ASAP.
    I feel certain that her fadda was arrested because of your post. The Tourist Board is a HUGE factor, so everyone on board here, please email them. I, for one, will stay put in my Caribbean hideout. I feel kind of bad, Belize (website) gives quite a bit of bonuses to retiring Us/CA citizens and I was looking forward to being there.
    My offer for the place free of charge in India still stands, FAR FAR out of the civilization of India,
    Due to ongoing renovations in my upstate NY home, my Jamaica place and my home in India are currently vacant. I also have contacts where you would be welcome “far out” of Buff’s Bay and deep into the John Crowe Mountains, if you are ever desparate for a change of venue.

    Sam, I am so sorry about your father. John, that is just so openly corrupt, in your face corrupt, that they would be allowed to carry away belongings when you have not been charged with a crime significant enough to allow this to happen. I cannot see how the issue of illegal guns would allow them to take away your property. That is one nasty government you have working to get you. Damn, it pisses me off reading this. For sure, Sam, I will write the government, once I calm down. I wonder if they even bother to read the emails though. I also will mention that they have lost a yet more tourists who regularly visit Belize. This is beyond insane. What has me really wound up, more than the property, is the continued imprisionment of friends and family. It is almost nazi like, no, it is nazi like. Stay safe you two, you have the eyes of the world upon you, and alot of folks concern for your safety. GSU, you folks are not right, did you parents really raise you to be what you are today? Would they be proud of you? Damn.

    In Belize, when the government doesn’t like you, watch out! This guy had his land stolen from him by the government and had to take his case all the way to the Supreme Court to stop them—- and they still want to take his land even after the court ruled in his favor!
    Samuel Bruce fights government for his property in court

    Samuel Bruce

    Samuel Bruce

    A legal battle over a property in Benque Viejo del Carmen is now before the Chief Justice. In one corner is Samuel Bruce, who got an injunction in the Supreme Court to stop the takeover of his property. In the other corner is the government, who wants the land. And smack in the middle is the Mount Carmel Primary School. Today the case started before Chief Justice, Dr. Abdulai Conteh, but it did not last for very long because the attorneys for the government, Priscilla Banner and Magali Perdomo asked for an adjournment in order to prepare skeletal arguments. The adjournment was granted but the CJ did not grant their request to have the injunction varied, which means that it will be applied to both sides. This would have prevented both Bruce and the government any kind of control over the land. According to Bruce, the entire property is worth one point two million dollars and he wonders why government is trying to take control of the land for a private institution that already has plenty to spare. News Five sat down with Samuel Bruce, the man who says he has held title to the land for close to two decades. Marion Ali reports.

    Marion Ali, Reporting

    Samuel Bruce has been living in Benque Viejo del Carmen for the past twenty years and says he has owned just over nine acres of land in the area since 1991. Over the years, he has developed the front half of the property. But according to Bruce, the government wants to acquire four point four acres of that land for Mount Carmel Primary School, a private Catholic institution. And that has brought the two sides before the Chief Justice. Bruce explains how he came to own the land.

    Samuel Bruce, Landowner

    “When I originally acquired the land, I bought it from a private individual, it was a private property, it was never a government land or lease land. In 1991, I bought it from Jose Guerra Mena.”

    Marion Ali

    “From then you’ve been working on it?”

    Samuel Bruce

    “Oh yes, there have been extensive development in the front section closest to the hydro or Arenal Road and then in July and August of 2008 when we were forming the People’s Coalition, neighborhood watch and these programs to combat crime.”

    Bruce says that he wrote to his Area Representative, Edwin Contreras, outlining his plans to develop the other half of his property for the economic upliftment of the community. The plan for the multipurpose facility includes swimming pools, playgrounds, a skateboard park, sporting courts, and space for business booths. He said Contreras initially supported the plan but when the work began, Bruce said he got a surprise.

    Samuel Bruce

    “I was informing him what my plans were with the hope that he would assist in some type of concessions and things like pumps for the swimming pools, things like that because he is the Minister of Economic Development and he is our Area Minister and he had pledged the support for such a project. Only until a friend of mine who works in Lands brought to my attention that my land is being acquired for a public school. That was in January of 2009.”

    By November of last year, Bruce said Mount Carmel had already conducted surveys on his land.

    Samuel Bruce

    “I was shown a document where the Ministry of Natural Resources gave permission for them to survey my land and on two occasions they had gone into my land, chopped and cleaned certain areas to make a survey, chopped down trees and stuff. The survey was done on November ninth, 2009.”

    Marion Ali

    “But do you have an understanding of how they got access to it?”

    Samuel Bruce

    “Not one official church leader has spoken with me. I would welcome them.”

    We tried to get Minister Erwin Contreras and the person in charge of Mount Carmel Parish, Deacon Cal Cathers, but both were out. The Minister, we were told will be out for the entire week. Reporting for News Five, Marion Ali.

    Samuel Bruce told us that he also had an appointment in April last year to see the Minister of Lands, Gaspar Vega, and that when he went to the Minister’s office he was told there would be no meeting. The case will resume on February twenty-third.

    I agree with Mr. Smoketoomuch:

    Why donate something to someone I disagree with and I don’t support?

    Why didn’t you build a school to enhance education and or a factory to improve income possibilities for underprivileged Belizeans?

    If the police gear of $400.000 was to be donated, why do you complain? They picked up, what was meant for them.

    And: How else should they react? You had quite a few days to turn in yourself, now what should they do? They search for evidence. I would do the same.

    Nevertheless I am very impressed. This is a new kind of guerrilla journalism, Truman Capote and Hubert Selby interactive. It is thrilling and enticing, with all elements of a good fairy tale: the bad king (PM Barrow) and his evil forces (GSU), the rich prince (John) and the innocent beauty (Sam). This is more than genius.

    So please fix the story here, it is becoming a bit weak. Or is that all intentional to keep up the tension?

    What crime has Sam’s father comitted?

    Was Greg Faull involved with smuggling cocaine to FL?

  59. Tallyman Avatar

    This Faull guy, hate to be the jerk that draws conclusions but…. If anything I have read is true he was the owner of a bar/eatery in Seminole county Florida. Arrested in 1997 and again in 2009, the second time for aggravated battery. My 15 years of Florida time has shown most bars are hotspots for drugs. If he had a violent side but was a sucessful business owner cocaine and booze are the first things that come to my mind. All this conjecture is simply to suggest that Greg may have been operating on the shady side. I’ll be flamed for making these statements but I’ve heard too much about underworld narco shit in the “Berlizean” (yes with an ‘r’) jungle to not be suspect. Bad dealings or just the wrong address?

    This gives credence to what you have been saying all along. I wonder if they had a court order or if such even exists in Belize and if so, what was the reason? I imagine, if so, it was looking for evidence, possibly trying to find other firearms that they could check the ballistics on. I wonder if they are pursuing any other leads/suspects?

    This isn’t right John. the rule of law these days is becoming less and less “just” with every blatant over-step. Thank you for making this public so the work can watch yet another example of the police state fulfilling the wishes of an unofficial pompous royalty. Piss them off and it’s off with your head.

    Hopefully real justice will prevail some way or another for you!

    Sounds like they are just looting your stuff.. I’m sure they were in there planting something too..
    Glad you’re still safe!
